Regardless of what you do for a living; whether you are an employee or a business owner, everybody needs Linkedin on some level at some point.

These days, being visible online and perceived as an industry expert is vital for your career success & Linkedin offers you one of the best ways to do this. If you type your name into GOOGLE, your Linkedin profile will be the number one listing – why not try it now – see what I mean?

If you don’t tell the market what you have done or are doing, nobody will know and you could be losing out on opportunities to younger people who may not be as smart or as experienced as you, but are just better at presenting themselves online.   

In this super ageist society we live in these days, one of the worst things that can happen to you is to get made redundant at 55+ because you are just that little bit too young to retire and a bit too old to viewed as a young & vital hire. I know this because I work with a lot of Senior Execs who suddenly & unexpectedly find themselves NOT a Senior Exec anymore. As a Senior Exec, there are much less jobs available where you are a good fit or that can pay you the salary that you are worth. Indeed, it’s much harder to play catch up after you are not in job anymore if your Linkedin profile is not already strong. Being active on the site and having an ‘All Star’ or 100% complete profile, you will already be showing up in recruiters searches and getting approaches long before you ever need it.

Even if you are happy & secure in your current role, it’s always nice to be in demand & approached for new opportunities and this will have the added benefit of giving you more confidence in yourself, which is always nice.

As an experienced Advertising, Sales and Marketing Consultant with 30+ years’ experience, I can help you to tell your story in a powerful way that will present you as an industry expert to the market.

I’ve helped hundreds of Senior Execs just like you to reconnect with their success and to find new jobs using Linkedin.  

Please let me know when you are ready to work with me. Please don’t wait till you NEED Linkedin to do this important work.   

I’m looking forward to helping you soon!

Thanks!
